How to apply System Message 06 076 to specific Purchasing Document Type?


Hi experts,

I have a question regarding the application of Purchasing system message 06 076 "Articles of requisition & item & alr. ordered in full" to only specific document types.

The scenario is as such:

There are two types of purchasing scenarios - Trade and Non-Trade. Naturally, they are distinguished by different Purchasing document types.

1. For the Trade Procurement scenario, the PO qty must not exceed the linked PR qty. Hence in our system design, we have applied system message 06 076 (Message Category = "E") to ensure the PO qty never exceeds the linked PR qty.

2. For the non-Trade Procurement however, such a stringent check is not required and thus, only a "W" message would be required.

Currently, the only feasible option on the table is to remove the standard system message 06 076 and build an enhancement to replace this check in the BAdI ME_PROCESS_PO_CUST.

I'm trying to avoid this option as I feel this is an unnecessary and potentially risky step, just to cater for a Non-Trade Procurement requirement which accounts for only 5% for the POs (both Trade and Non-Trade).

I have investigated potential Customizing solutions but came up with nothing. The other option our team looked at is to implement a simple logic to have the Non-Trade PO types side-step the standard system check for PO qty vs PR qty, but there is no standard user exit to implement this logic.

At this point in time, I would like to ask if any of you would have any other way to address such a business requirement?

Much thanks in advance!
